-provided insurance who are not affected by the health care law are soon going to see themselves booted off those plans has employers decide to push employees into health exchanges. is that a real danger that americans should be worried about or is this just another fear tactic, something that the gop is using to scare people? >> at the moment i think this is just a big fear tactic. right now i have insurance through the washington post. they don't have to do anything. they don't have to give me a dollar of insurance. the affordable care act, the main change it makes is actually they would have to pay money if they didn't give me insurance so it becomes a more costly proposition for them to stop giving me insurance. the republican argument is it making it harder for employers to stop giving insurance, will mean more of them do it. it's an odd look at it. the best evidence we have on this coming out of the massachusetts reforms, which are very similar to obama care which also have a very similar kind of employer mandate, they have had no employer dropoff. in fact more employers are offering insura

to sign into law a five cent gasoline tax increase 31 years ago when a nickel a gallon was real money. a user fee is in fact a different category from a general tax increase. the various groups that score such votes treat user fees differently. as we are attempting to resolve budget differences, there's an opportunity to embrace more transportation resources through user fee mechanisms that will have broad national support and not inspire the same fierce philosophical debate that's plagued and paralyzed our deliberations for years. it has the added benefit of being the fastest way to put hundreds of thousands of people to work at family wage jobs to help boost our flagging economy. i strongly urge my colleagues to take a step back and look at this as a way to crack the code, to meet vast unmet needs of our constituents and stabilize a critical part of our budget. who knows? if we can find a way to thread this particular transportation funding needle, how many additional opportunities are there to solve problems going forward if we can address them? this is what it -- i think what it t
